One of the things you shouldn’t do when you’ve had a drink beyond your thirst is definitely going to the tattoo artist. A subject that looks really cool when drunk can turn out to be a big mistake when sober. After all, it’s really difficult to get rid of such an artistic sin. Geralt may even carry his drunk tattoo from The Witcher 2 into the next game.
Tattoo sin from the predecessor
Taking to Twitter, author and journalist Cian Maher notes that not enough people are talking about the fact that Geralt can get a neck tattoo while drunk in The Witcher 2, which he then takes with him into The Witcher 3. Because we also find this story quite funny, we wanted to remind you of it – or draw your attention to it if you don’t know it yet.
In the tweet you can also get an impression of how Geralt’s skin art looks like:

How does the tattoo from part 2 end up in Witcher 3? It’s simple: You can transfer your save from The Witcher 2 to The Witcher 3. Then the story decisions that affect the sequel are taken over directly – and yes, that includes the drunk tattoo.
How did Geralt get that tattoo again?
The side mission from The Witcher 2, in which Geralt looks too deep into the glass, is called “Hangover”. In this, the witcher ends up in a tavern in Flotsam, where he celebrates, competes in knife throwing and is finally asked to drink by Ves.

If you agree, Geralt will wake up near the port the next day without his clothes and memory, but with a new neck tattoo. After that, it’s your job to get the clothes back and find out what happened that night.
You also have the option of having the tattoo removed later. If you decide against it, you can roam around with it in the rest of the game and in The Witcher 3.
Do you know the side mission and how long did Geralt carry the tattoo around with you?
